According to Toyota, producing 1kg (2.2#) of carbon fiber generates 30kg (66#) of CO2. For titanium and aluminum it's 14kg (31#), and for steel, 2.5kg (5.5#).

Steel is good for the environment, moreons.

Yes... but you're sequestering Carbon in your bicycle itself. you can't do that with metals... unless it's steel.

A moron is someone who spells it "moreon." :rolleyes:

Know what else is bad for the environment? Me driving my car more often 'cause I hate my steel bike. And then, I'll be cranky because I have to drive in the big city with big city idiot-drivers. So then I'll drive more aggressively, pumping more pollutants into the air.

Maybe carbon manufacturing is worse for the environment, and that's a bummer. But in a way, my having an all carbon bike is better for the environment.

Besides, I work from home, recycle religiously, drive a small car, and ride the bike to the club rides. My carbon (fiber) footprint is smaller than those of 95% of the population.
